Official: The Reaper's Challenge

We are bringing a new type of queue to the preview server called The Reaper's Challenge. Each day will be a different map, with different variables modifiers.

Some combinations will be more difficult, others will be less difficult. Each one is different. More modifiers will be introduced over time.

Completing the daily challenge will give you a new currency which can be spent at the Priest of Myrkul who can be found in Protector's Enclave.

Let us know what you think once you've tried it out!

    Wow those rewards look awesome! I'm curious with the daily bonus being 1 of the new currency, how much do you get for completing said dungeon? - or is it 1 per run ?

    I just looked at the mounts from the mount choice pack in Priest of Myrkul NPC rewards. I dont know if there are others missing, but on first look I noticed Hellfire Steed mount is not there in selections, is it intended to be left out or just forgotten to add? Its also missing on Magnificent Resurgence Legendary Pack aswell.

    Will the Item Level requirement be 50,000 for both Public and Private queues? At the moment it remains the same when queuing privately. Currently all of the other private queues require 5,000 less Item Level so this does not follow suit.

    Also, is the daily reward currency (The Reaper's Mark) per character or per account?
  • noworries#8859 noworries Member, Cryptic Developer Posts: 640 Cryptic Developer
    The Reaper's Mark is max 1 per day per account. It is a reward for beating the daily challenge.

    Currently private and public queue item level requirements are the same.

    Is the "Reaper's Mark" currency account wide or can it be transferred from one character to another?

    Or are we "locked" into doing the challenge always on the same character if we want to accumulate 30 to buy the packs (similar to Hell Pit)?

    Nice start, it would be great if you expand on this in the future. Adding harder challenges and more rewards such as fashion or transmute armor sets/weapons. That way fashion junkies like myself can get a fix

    We run the challange today.
    It just switched from LOMM to pirat hold.
    While the mobs along the way were pleasantly difficult (we were only 4 ppl)
    The bosses were way to easy
  • nova#2306 nova Member Posts: 139 Arc User
    Something I noticed

    Reaper's Challenge Day 2
    - Pirate King's Retreat: the dungeon level is now level 20, unlike the leveling version of the dungeon as 5. Just something I noticed not sure if it means a whole lot or not.
    - The item level requirement for Reapers Challenge will always be 50k? Will it ever be lower or higher with different days?

    I really like the idea! As others pointed out, insignia powder and greater shards of empowerment would be nice if added to the potential reward list.

    However as there is Legendary Companion choice pack, I'd like to suggest adding Sharandar Companion Equipment choice pack with all pieces of IL 1300 and 1350 to the list, basically all the purple pieces from the collections.

    Bounties in Sharandar are really tidious sometimes with all the rng involved and allowing us to buy those equipment pieces - even at price of 7 tokens - would be great.

    On todays challenge of the pirate king's retreat there's a bug / exploit.

    The challenge disallows consumables in the dungeon, and this stops them being consumed in the challenge which is correct.

    The problem is that you can consume them prior to entering the dungeon, or even by simply traveling outside the challenge and then returning.

    Can we please get a perma-death HC version only available for The Reapers Challenge?

    Rewards should of course reflect the risk.

    I have a quick recommendation, I've been playing since 2014 and y'all still haven't released this. Unbinding tokens, what they would do is make character bound items account bound or not bound at all. It would be very nice for us to be able to switch our companions from character to character.

    The challenge is ok, quite challenging, fun, rewards decent.
    However, chest content at the end is neither fun nor decent.
    Remove this rubbish, add there normal rewards and give the option to reroll.
    Insignia Powder and legendary insignias would be welcome.
    I like the rest overall :)
    Better to feed the troll than listen to the idiot .
  • mushellkamushellka Member, NW M9 Playtest Posts: 357 Arc User
    Since you can do it once per day, I have a question: is the currency per account or per character?

    I generally welcome the idea and the attached rewards. Would like to see it expanded a little bit as others noted, (Collars, Insignia Powder).

    I additionally first was very pleased to see Wards included, because the current state of the ZAX breaks the f2p model of the game and Preservation Wards are one reason why. But tbh the ones that can run the Reaper's Challenge (50k+) aren't typically short on Wards. So this unfortunately does not help the right tier of players.

    Great idea, Good Job Cryptic! I am very pleased with bringing life to old content, the detail of the new patch notes, and more importantly seeing fixes in the the patch notes (not just nerfs), not sure what changed in the development team, but its a great change. Keep up the good work!

    If you meant this as to be a challenge, I hope you will not disappoint the players, especially the end-gamers who are currently bored, inactives and have nothing to do in the game after completing and running simultaneously of the end-game trials and dungeons out there. What is the purpose of maxing out the items and gears, if they can run the dungeons and trials with ease, even just having 40-45k TiL. It find no challenge at all, whenever there is a hard part of something gets nerf and nerf. The real fun and challenging were the days of ToMM, Zariel and VoS (on preview before it gets nerfed) first week of release. We like the idea of coming up of Reaper's Challenge, I do hope it's a real hard feature and doable.
